How to Utilize Character Backstory as a Player or Game Master - Presented by Ashtin Birkicht

Character creation can sometimes be a hassle. Whether it's just a few short paragraphs, or pages of information, having a backstory for your character enhances the game play. You can either use your backstory to help fill out your character sheet, or use your character sheet to help fill in your backstory. Once the backstory is filled, its hard to see that work not get utilized. As a Game Master, instead of shying away from those pages of text your players send, wrapping them into the plot, or subplots, help your players feel as if they're a part of the story. 

Developing a Character Race in D&D 5e - Presented by Mark Burton

Learn about the mechanics of race creation while avoiding pitfalls of integrating too much culture in the game rules, then place the new race in your setting.
